Keeping your home on trend

Kitchen Improvment

Trends come and go so quickly it can be difficult to keep your home up-to-date with the hottest interior trends. You have to be picky with what trend you choose as you don’t want it to be out of fashion no sooner have you transformed your home. With so many trends circulating in 2017, providers of kitchens in Aberdeen, DM Design has given an insight into some of the hottest trends right now for your home.

Revitalizing greens
Green is the ‘it’ colour this year. It represents revitalization, as well as reflecting the current interest in bringing environmental sustainability into the home. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your colouring and take a chance with green – the brighter the better.

Industrial is back again
Industrial is a trend which has been present with for a few years now, but that’s not to say it is out of date. In fact, industrial design is back again this year, bigger than ever – especially in your kitchens. You don’t have to go all-out for a nod towards this trend – simply a table, or chairs, or a statement item in steel can achieve this look.

Don’t be afraid to mix ‘n’ match
Mixing and matching can work well when done correctly. Mixing patterns and texture can add such a dynamic twist to your home. A variety of florals all working together can look great – as can different thicknesses of stripes. An array of textures is also going to come through. Mix fabrics, wallpaper and different surfaces to catch the eye.

Fabulous fur
Faux fur is not necessarily just a winter accessory. Whether it’s lamps, furniture or rugs, fur household items are making a comeback and instead of bringing out fur items as the winter months approach, add fur touches (in lighter tones) all year round for an instantly contemporary feel – even through the summer months.

Colour it up with jewels
Jewel colours are in – and are proving to be a great way to add a touch of luxury to your home. Think berry colours, rich greens, turquoises and blues. Jewel colours can be used as either accent colours or across whole walls.

Goodbye formal, hello relaxation
2017 introduces relaxation into your homes with a Bohemian approach to décor. Think plants, woven baskets and printed fabrics help to achieve this look in a cost-effective way. Say goodbye to formality, and put your feet up and relax.
